SCHULTZ, Herbert
(1925 – 2010)

On Sunday January 31st, Mr. Herbert P. “Herb” Schultz of Osoyoos passed away at the South Okanagan General Hospital at the age of 85 years.

He was predeceased by his parents Phillip and Erna as well as his wartime extended family; Arthur and Dorothy Genet and their sons Basil (Rose) and Maurice.

Herb will be lovingly remembered by Eileen, his beloved wife of sixty-one years; daughter Elaine (Doug) Harper and son Jack (Rita); grandsons Keith (Barb), Allan (Alison), Michael (Joanne), David (Toni), Adam (Kim) and Patrick (Heather); and great-grandchildren include Nathan, Brayden, Stacey, Melanie and Logan; his brothers Alex (Yvonne) and Carl (Betty) as well as his sister Leona (Emmett) Hansen; his many nieces and nephews, and his wartime extended family, Edwin, Denis (Betty) and Sheila Helmore.

Herb was born in Edmonton, Alberta and prior to the war, he worked on his uncle’s dairy farm.
He served active duty during the Second World War with the Canadian Scottish Regiment. Herb received service medals including the 1939-1945 Star, France and Germany Star and the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with Clasp.

Following the war, he worked in housekeeping at the George Derby Centre for Veterans.
He was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion # 173 and enjoyed helping with the Poppy Drive. He was also on the Water Quality Society, Rural Rate Payers Association, the C.N.I.B. and he was an Elder with Valley Congregational for many years. In his earlier years he volunteered as a Cub Leader in Surrey and was a First Aid attendant for Minor Lacrosse.

Herb travelled extensively and loved cruising. He enjoyed fishing, camping, watching hockey, playing guitar and mouth organ and singing around camp fires and at church.

A private family graveside service will be held at the Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery, Field of Honour. A memorial service will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday February 6th at the Valley Congregational Christian Church on Black Sage Road.
